Learn how chemicals are regulated under TSCA

Awareness of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) is essential for any business using or manufacturing industrial chemicals in the US. Staying compliant with TSCA, and meeting the challenges the legislation throws down, requires companies to have an in-depth understanding of how the legislation works and what it requires of them.

This is particularly so since the legislation underwent major changes in 2016. It’s also crucial that businesses affected by TSCA get to understand and anticipate how the EPA’s implementation of the law can impact their chemical selection and uses.

This first course of the three-part series will:

  • Give you a general overview of TSCA;
  • Take an in-depth look at confidential business information (CBI); and
  • Explain TSCA Section 5, including the following aspects:
  • Definitions
  • TSCA inventory
  • Exemptions
  • New chemicals/new use
  • Significant new use rules (Snurs).
